What Terri's students are saying:

"I took some lessons to improve my short game from Terri in June of 2014.  I am a teacher myself so I feel I am able to judge good teaching.  Terri made me feel at ease during our lessons.  She was patient, but honest in her assessment of my progress.  She would state what she wanted me to do with different words until it seemed to click for me.  She ended our sessions by giving me notes which I could read over later.  I still read those notes.  It took about 2 months for me to internalize all that she told me and for me to adjust and make it my own, but my short game improved significantly as a result of my lessons with her"
-Karla Reichelt

"I have worked with Terri Boehm for the past two years on my golf swing.  She has a great understanding of the biomechanics of the golf swing and how the swing path affects the flight of the golf ball.  She helps me approach my flaws in the swing with a variety of drills and solutions.  I now swing with less effort, hit the ball longer and more accurate, and my scores have become lower.  Most importantly, I have an understanding from my ball flight during a round, how to fix my swing when I am not getting the results I have come to expect."
-Dave Brown, Ph.D.

"I really enjoyed my golf lessons with Terri, and her help with my short game has been invaluable.  Thanks to Terri's excellent teaching skills and passion for the game,  she was able to show me correct chipping and putting techniques in such a way that were easy to understand and fun to practice.  Best of all, I saw immediate results with lowered scores on the course." 
-Sandy Forest

"If you are struggling right now with your swing, if you are just starting out, or if you want to get your kids involved in golf, I would highly recommend Terri!"

Background

Terri Boehm, Ph.D. began her teaching career in 2009, after a successful 15-year career in the pharmaceutical industry.  At that time her passion for golf transitioned from player to instructor.  It was from her strong desire to become a competitive player that Terri was drawn to golf instruction.  She now finds great satisfaction from helping her students achieve their golfing goals.




Terri had a goal to become a single digit handicap player.  After years of moderate improvement with no instruction, in 2002 Terri sought out help and was met with varying results.  Some instructors would appear very knowledgeable but the swing changes they proposed where not easily accomplished.  It was hard to make sense of what they were saying, Terri did not always speak their language.

What Terri realized was the most significant improvements came from the instructors that educated her on what she was doing, what she should be doing and finally on how to do it.  She was speaking their language, or maybe they were speaking hers.  In 2005 Terri achieved her goal and then started pursuing a new goal, helping others find their best golf.

Terri's natural curiosity lead her to become a student of the golf swing and the game.  For the past 13 years Terri has been learning the tools and techniques that top instructors use to get results.   She has studied communication, motor skill learning, equipment variables, physical conditioning, the neuroscience of golf, the psychology of performance, conditions of practice as well as the technical aspects of the golf swing.  Terri is a LPGA Teaching and Club Professional member and has received training from their research-based Teaching Program.  She is also a Certified New Rules Golf Coach.  Both of these training programs emphasize preserving the uniqueness of each student.  No two people sign their name the same way and no two people swing the club the same way.

In addition to her training, Terri has held a number of positions with-in the golf industry.  She has worked as an Assistant Golf Professional at Four Seasons Country Club in Chesterfield, Missouri and Whitmoor Country Club in St. Charles, Missouri.  Most recently she was the Head Golf Professional/Tournament Director at the Links at Dardenne in O'Fallon, Missouri.  Terri was a club member of the former Players Club, now Crescent Farms Golf Club in Eureka, Missouri from 2003 to 2009.

"I think one of the most important things I bring to the lesson tee is my experience as an amateur player trying to improve while pursuing a full-time career.  I have first hand knowledge of what works and what does not.  The technical aspects of golf are just one component to helping students reach their goals.  As golf coaches we owe it to our students to understand all the components of teaching and learning that will influence their aspirations."
